Tesla was a no-show to the online meeting.

I had a second interview scheduled with Tesla today, this time it was a Zoom meeting. No one showed up.

The network for smog inspections is down in the area, maybe even statewide. The lowest bidder always delivers.

Surprisingly it’s been a few years since this happened. The last time it happened was when the state transitioned our gas analyzer machine to the internet instead of phone line. It was clear the state contractor wasn’t ready for the volume.

Maybe the 20th time is the charm: I applied at VW's emissions lab yet again.  Maybe the 20th time is the charm: I applied at VW's emissions lab yet again. 

It requires zero effort from me so what the hell. But I really want to drive over there, talk to the hiring manager, and ask him what and the eff is his problem. Considering the fact that recruiters have been contacting me about the position for TWO YEARS now, it’s clear they can NOT find someone qualified. Yet they…

I fooled Tesla. I have my second interview next week.  I fooled Tesla. I have my second interview next week. 

I should add “bullshit artist” to my resume. I was able to easily fool them into thinking I’m a Tesla Fanboi. But seriously, it seems like my resume is very attractive to them. I’m highly qualified and should be a good fit for them. And I am way more excited than I was before.

A BAR Field Office called me for an interview. I haven't applied for a while.  A BAR Field Office called me for an interview. I haven't applied for a while. 

I turned down an interview at this particular office back in December because I had just taken the job at the smog shop. So either they’re hiring again and no one qualified applied. Or their first round of interviews didn’t yield anything so now they’re calling people who turned down the last one.

It really is fascinating to see how utterly stupid commenters at Jalopnik can be when it comes to talking about EVs.  It really is fascinating to see how utterly stupid commenters at Jalopnik can be when it comes to talking about EVs. 

First off, they’re experts on EVs. I guess I am wrong and haven’t taken my “useless” range EV up and down the state. And I apparently have to have a charging station at my house. And my car is just a compliance car because it’s not a Tesla. What happened to the days of informed opinions?

I find that quite funny. They emailed me back within an hour of submitting my applications. I applied for a tech position at the dealer and then as a mobile tech. I’d much rather be mobile.

Mazda CX 5 Rental Review vs a MKVII Golf Mazda CX 5 Rental Review vs a MKVII Golf

I got my hands on a 2018 CX 5 to check out. I got curious and looked at the rear leg room in comparison to my e-Golf. I was shocked at the results

How you know when you've made it: Your video is used in a tow video on a tow channel in Austin, TX. OH YEAH! How you know when you've made it: Your video is used in a tow video on a tow channel in Austin, TX. OH YEAH!

I discovered this lovely channel in which this owner of an IT company posts videos of people getting their cars towed when they park in POSTED no parking zones.

Politics: Billionaire tells Federal works to stop bitchin and just take out loans. 

From CNBC: “I know they are [going to homeless shelters] and I don’t really quite understand why because as I mentioned before, the obligations that they would undertake – say borrowing from a bank or credit union – are in effect federally guaranteed,” said Ross. “So the 30 days of pay that people will be out –…

Oppo Hive Mind Update: Had my meeting with the shop owners... WHAT A CLUSTERFUCK! Repost for the east coast. Oppo Hive Mind Update: Had my meeting with the shop owners... WHAT A CLUSTERFUCK! Repost for the east coast.

So the owners came by Saturday to finally go over my ideas to improve the shop and get more cars in. But instead, it was one owner bitching and complaining that I have the shop and office set up “wrong” and it’s too cluttered. I was so fucking pissed. And I still am pissed.

Not only can he not read, but he can’t park either. Hopefully he can afford that $40 parking ticket.

Customer came in, she’s from Oregon, and needs a smog inspection for her Oregon registration. I guess Oregon will accept our registration. Apparently Oregon has self service smog inspections, so I ask, what and the FUCK is the point of even requiring smog inspections there?

I got lots of feedback from you guys, and it was all great, so thank you. The most common theme was, of course, hours, and everyone seemed to agree I should somehow be open until 1900. I think this is a good idea, but as I’m currently the only one here I need to get creative.
